Dear god, what’s this? Good news about Apple? Something that’s been hard to come by recently. Over 2 million iPhone 5’s were sold in the first weekend of the product going on sale… That’s a lot.
It had been reported that Apple’s sales in Asia were not good, something that had contributed to the decrease in Apple’s share price, wiping 5% off the value of the company. Clearly this isn’t true, 2 million units in 3 days is a serious amount for any corporation.
“Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China,” said Tim Cook. Clearly the Chinese really like iPhone’s. Interesting considering the 4S has been outselling the 5 in Europe. [cnn]
